It's the penultimate home game of the 2010 season. Only two chances left for Houston soccer fans to see their Dynamo. Sure it's been a tough season but we love our Dynamo and there is a good chance some familiar faces could be leaving in the off season. Take the chance to head out to Robertson Stadium and cheer for your team before the season comes to a c lose.

The New England Revolution come to town and Houston will be looking for a little revenge for the 1-0 loss back in August.

Let's take a look at five things you should know about Sunday's match.

1. The Dynamo are 2-5-5 all-time against the Revolution and have never beaten New England at Robertson (0-3-1, with a -4 goal differential)

2. The teams will play with a pink accented Jabulani ball on Sunday as part of MLS' Breast Cancer Awareness initiative. Pink balls!!

3. Brian Ching, Colin Clarke and Anthony Obodai will all be unavailable on Sunday with injuries. Ching collided knees with a Union player last week and there was concern he might miss the rest of the season. Further examination showed the injury wasn't as serious as first thought and Ching could return this season.

4. Geoff Cameron has played nine games in the midfield this season. The Dynamo have a .444 winning percentage in those nine matches, and .333 winning percentage in the rest of their matches. They are 1-1 with Cameron in the central defense. No doubt, this could have been a different season had Cameron not gotten injured early in the campaign.

5. Richard Mulrooney could make his 100th career start for the Dynamo if he is in Kinnear's starting XI. He would be the 11th Dynamo player to reach that milestone. If Pat Onstad starts in goal, it will be his club-record 170th career start.
